Camp Seymour
  • Hi Parkwood 4th and 5th Grade Families!

    Camp Seymour is a Parkwood 6th grade tradition.  In the fall of 2019, BOTH 5th and 6th graders will attend camp because after 2019, 6th grade will transition to the middle school and camp will become a 5th grade tradition. So, next October, our classes head off to experience the YMCA’s Outdoor Education camp in Gig Harbor.  It is a highlight of our school year!

    First, the permission form is needed before your student can attend camp.  **Please complete the forms and return them to your child’s classroom teacher as soon as possible.**   We know it seems early, but planning ahead for this trip is essential.

    Second, did you know that you can start depositing money into your child’s camp account?  The cost of camp is $165 per student.  You may make deposits of any amount by sending a check made out to Parkwood Elementary, just mark it clearly with your child’s name and Camp Seymour.  In addition, there is scholarship money available, so if you know you will need a scholarship, please contact our Family Advocate, Ms. Treece, at 206-393-1397 or let your child’s teacher know. We will work with you to make this experience affordable for your family!

    Finally, we need parent chaperones to attend camp with us!  It will be an experience you will enjoy as much as the students, so please consider this opportunity to join us.  In addition to the usual volunteer background paperwork, each chaperone will also need to be fingerprinted. Chaperones do not have to pay the camp fee. If you are interested, please return the form below and we will contact you with further information about how to complete the necessary paperwork.

    Camp Seymour is a fantastic experience for all.  Email us with your questions!

    Thank you, Your 6th grade teaching team,
